Free DNA Testing at the SCGS

This is a chance not to be passed up - the Southern California Genealogical Society and Family Research Library will be welcoming the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation on August 25 and 26. They will be on hand to provide FREE genealogical testing for interested individuals. The test appears to be fairly noninvasive and it will require you to swish some mouthwash for a minute or so. You'll have to do a little homework, however; you will need to bring at least a 4-generation pedigree chart with you. The hours are 10 AM - 4 PM on Saturday and 10 AM - 2 PM on Sunday. Sunday would be a good day to attend, as there will be a presentation from 10 AM - 12 PM on "Linking Genetic Data with Genealogical Records".
